Letters to Lizzy - A Nest Box Craze

Dear Lizzy,
You have mentioned that you and your entire flock of girls prefer ONE certain nest box. 
Lizzy, PLEASE tell us what is so special about that one particular nest box!
Signed,
Alice in Wonderland
Dear Alice,
Most hens, when choosing a place to pop out an egg, will be looking for that special spot - the HOT SEAT, if you will - and when they notice another hen has picked THE perfect nest, of course the next hen will want it TOO!  Kind of like you HUMANS - always wanting what the other one has!  And, if we're lucky, the box will be warm and cozy, already burrowed into the shape of a hen's body, and ready to accept another egg!  What could be more EGG-citing?!?
- Lizzy

Sounds like a good idea to use a warm nest, rather than a cold one.

Hey, I learned something today.... I love the shredded paper in there, looks like a very artistic nest. Quick, send it in to Somerset magazine.

Hi Sweetie...
I love it when Lizzy shares with me. She is just so stinkin cute. You can tell her so too.

Isn't it funny how nature always wants what the other has. Even in critters.

Hope you are having a great week. I am in and out of late. Trying to catch up and visit. Sorry for the tardiness sweetie.

Many hugs and so much love, Sherry
